Artist's "camel hair" brushes are not camel, fox or badger hair (altho' shaving brushes were indeed badger )

I spent some time photographing an orphaned handreared badger cub for the local wildlife hospital a few years ago, and from close up (very close up, I was lying down to get at snout level, and he was treated to a snack of worms just in front of me ) their fur is like a dandelion seed head, not thick but incredibly fine. I'd imagine it might not be sufficiently stiff to make a good precise paint brush.

Squirrel  it is :lol: Ding !

Yep, camel hair brushes are squirrel hair brushes, and Tufty was a squirrel.

 

The Tufty Club was a long ago TV road safety campaign , and a later one featured the Green Cross  Code Man, played by actor Dave Prowse.

As every geek knows, Prowsa was the actor & bodybuilder who provided the physical representation of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars films, altho' apparently his Bristolian accent didn't quite produce the required level of menace, so the voice was provided by James Earl Jones. Excellent video here

1 Find a phone box

2 Does it work?

4 Allowing for inflation, it will be over 50p by now AND there's no cache in there to find while you phone!

 

1. Done that didnt help - in Germany - wrong currency

2. They should work

3. More than likely.

4. Inflation, more than 50p - I shall up my bid from 5p to 60p.

60p is the answer we were looking for

Technically the correct answer, but not the one we had in mind, sorry.

Apart from the obvious...

Still has something to do with snooker.

I was listening to some of my old mp3 files at the weekend and came up with some Chas and Dave Songs - the connection is Snooker Loopy from 1986 where Chas and Dave took the Mickey out of the way they played snooker. Thats going back in time.
